And the winner is.....

...... Jamie of Food Junkie! :) Congrats to her, and thank you for everyone who entered! It was a great contest and I really do love these books. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a little bit of help in the food section.

Out of 306 entries, she took spots one AND two... go get yourself some lottery tickets girl!!

I went straight from home, where my meals were prepared for me, to cooking on my "own" in college, which included a lot of soups, macaroni and cheese, sandwiches and quesadillas. Now, being a complete 'grown up' I have come to realize how important food is and how many great meals there are out there that was super easy to make. It's a process but I am learning.

As for the Eat this Not that Books, I would buy the fast food one if you are constantly out and trying to find healthier choices for yourself. I would buy the supermarket survival guide if you eat in a lot and are buying a majority of your food at the market. I found both really helpful, because a lot of the time in the market if it says, "fat-free," or "low calorie" I automatically assume it's better for me, which is a lot of false advertising.

Tonight I'll be running seven miles at the park and then watching the biggest loser! I was going to run this morning but figured a little more rest for my sore knee couldn't hurt. Hope everyone has a great day! Don't forget to email me if you want to sign up for the Freakishly Flexible 5k Virtual Race!!! Earn yourself an extra cupcake this Valentines Day!

Congrats!!!!

by the way, I am so jealous of you!! (in a good way) :) I wish I could get into running like that. I know I can, I just have to get some discipline! Do you usually run in the mornings? I wish I had a neighborhood with a lot of sidewalks to run on. Also, the treadmills at my gym are always full and plus they only give you 20 minutes at a time.

Sorry to ramble!! lol :)
